Archival Documentation & Material

An unfortunate element of non-violent protests for civil rightseven todayis the possibility of being arrested. During Peggy's time with SNCC, her being threatened and arrested was inevitable as she along with so many others fought for justice in the South.  Here are some of the documentation (e.g., press releases, etc.) and material (e.g., telegrams, etc.), related to some of those arrests and threats (e.g., assault, bombs, burnings, etc.).
